New reports will redefine civil and family justice in Northern Ireland

Responding to the publication of the major review of civil and family justice and the creation of a shadow Family Justice Board and shadow Civil Justice Council the President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Ian Huddleston said:

“The Law Society of Northern Ireland welcomes the publication of the reports on the major review of civil and family justice and the creation of a shadow Family Justice Board and shadow Civil Justice Council.

“The Society acknowledges the considerable work which has been undertaken on these important issues by the Lord Chief Justice and by Lord Justice Gillen in conjunction with the profession.

“The recommendations outlined in the report and the creation of a shadow Family Justice Board and shadow Civil Justice Council will undoubtedly redefine Civil and family justice in Northern Ireland for the foreseeable future.”
